Editing API connections


You can edit your connection to an API at anytime. You can see a list of all APIs you have signed up for on these two pages: <a href="https://open.blockspring.com/settings/applications">APIs that use OAuth</a> <a href="https://open.blockspring.com/settings/secrets">APIs that use secrets</a> If you are part of an organization, and also have access to view your organization's connections, you can see the connections on these two pages: <a href="https://open.blockspring.com/organization/applications">Organization APIs that use OAuth</a> <a href="https://open.blockspring.com/organization/secrets">Organization APIs that use secrets</a> ### Connection methods There are two ways Blockspring connects to an API: OAuth and secrets. #### OAuth For APIs that use OAuth, you typically log into the company's website, then "authorize" Blockspring to connect to your account for that company. An example of an API that uses OAuth is Twitter. To edit API connections that use OAuth, go <a href="https://open.blockspring.com/organization/applications">here</a> to see your connected OAuth APIs, then click the red "delete" button, then go to a block that uses the API and click the green "connect" button. #### Secrets For APIs that use secrets, after you create an account on the company's website, they will give you a long string of letters that looks like a password. This is referred to as a "secret". Then on Blockspring you can connect to that API by entering your secret. An example of an API that uses secrets is <a href="https://open.blockspring.com/tags/272-fullcontact">FullContact</a>. To edit API connections that use secrets, go <a href="https://open.blockspring.com/organization/secrets">here</a> to see your connected APIs. Nexst, click the white "Edit" button next to the API you want to edit. Paste in your secret. This can typically be found on the company's website.
